more information on where we can reside if there is going to be a ban completely exile us out of the city, but now that i am hearing what is going on that the programs are trying to find places for us i will try to find out a little bit more. i appreciate you guys doing what you can, but having a ban -- i know it's more of industrial vehicles that are being a problem than rv's, but i know a lot of the homeless people they recycle and some people don't clean up after themselves. they leave big messes and i think us being in rv's we try to contain our habitation. we have our bathroom for sanitation reasons. there is no really -- you know what? this is an idea for you guys to have more bathrooms or like out houses in some areas -- >> thank you. >> for sanitary reasons -- >> thank you. >> because a lot of the businesses won't allow to you walk in. >> thank you. thank you very much. >> [inaudible] >> thank you. thank you. >> hello. my name is isaac and i just have a couple of things that are on my mind. i was just wondering why -- okay. so the city is trying to fix the hom
for the rate payers. there's no cost difference between what shell has given us for the no-power price and what we would be able to do with our own hetchy power during the january to june runoff, firmed up, plus the market power rates. and, so, that was one key finding. in addition to that -- >> sorry, i just want to understand that. there was no price difference? >> there was no -- there was no significant projected savings. and, in fact, it came out once we firmed it, the firming costs and the shaping costs was about a dollar -- about a penny-43. while we started out with hetchy power being affordable, by the time you formed and shaped it, it was very close to what shell was giving us as a market price for the no power or market power. >> so, why, why wouldn't we go this way? >> it's a policy choice. one of the policy choices would be if we choose to go this way, which is a right answer, it does, however, then tie up 30 megawatts that you average generation that you wouldn't be able to sell to hunters point shipyard phase 2, or park merced, or transbay tower, or some other higher revenue payi
that however local power just keeps saying use prop h bonds for build out despite the fact that repeatedly. city attorney came to l.a. s c o and explained why it's not probably and they are not saying it today but that is the proposal for local build out and the city attorney has explained that it's for private use. and prop h is public bonds. public funds. second, the co general facility proposal the combined power is not only is that a continued investment in fossil fuels and it's private, local power has been saying for years now that it doesn't identify and know the sites that those cogent facilities would be located on but they don't think there would be any problem with seek away because it [spelling?] aught to be extent and they don't think there are any citing or permitting issues and they are still saying this at the done annoy where those location are and they are still talking about hetch hetchy power and i trust your staff with i know it's the same issue for all of these times and as a permitting environmental lawyer, i hear the proposal for local build-out would you tell a
understand your point of view. i think it's a good opportunity for us to focus on what could be done and what more to do and what we need with the vehicle component. >> i understand. any other questions? >> supervisor cohen. >> thank you. i wanted to take a minute and complement you and your team as well as you bevin and reaching out and finding four people. that is something to be acknowledged and i am really excited about that. >> quite a few more people expressed interest in it and wanted to learn about the possibility of having their vehicle stored. i'm just reporting on the folks i met with individually after we fliered who called me. people spoke with the outreach workers and got the same set of information. i am looking at the second level of people who really decided to affirmatively push for contact before the legislation that wanted the information and that maybe the higher functioning folks out there. >> thank you. why don't we open up this item for public comment? are there members of the public that would like to speak on item two? i don't have speaker cards in f
and i appreciate you fitting us in here, so they have a point by point analysis of what they found to be troubling, and in most case its wasn't the citizen's general obligation bond oversight committee to respond. it was the controller's office to respond. there were a few points that we had to respond to and one had to do with the frequency of meeting and where the whistle blower program was on the website and how available it was, and also how do we oversee it? what level of depth do we get and that's when we had discussions having to do with the privacy because if you don't feel you're anonymous you will definitely not come forward as a whistle blower versus the need for us to get more detail we were getting prior to that, so all of that, the civil grand jury member was certainly a part of that discussion, but the decision and the -- i wrote the report, and the decision was made by the entire committee. >> just a final question in terms of the staffing of this nine member body because you you're all volunteers, and we appreciate all the time that you put into it, so is there a
francisco will give us a opportunity with case management and we are midfiscal year but we are making a push for the stabilization beds and it's reality and if we say we're going to do something that we vtd ability to do it and there are not four or five stabilization beds vacant and we realize it's a population that is larger so with that if it's appropriate -- i did want to respond to some of the testimony and simply say if community meetings are going to happen i think it would be great to reach out to the coalition and see if the coalition would sponsor one with the mta. i think that would be helpful and people in the vehicles are not getting emails or letters from neighborhood associations and i think it's a good opportunity if the coalition is willing and certainly the resources we're providing in terms of stabilization beds, in terms of storage meet some of the standards that the coalition would like it's important to have their involvement and i recognize they're trusted by individuals not participated in the system so to speak and frustrated and not liked what they were offered pre
is that to the extent that the local build out is the reason people might sign up for us, we do have to recognize that for all of the unanswered questions that we have on this part -- this is the simple one. this is by comparison a piece of cake, both to analyze and to implement. much more difficult. the program that's been put forward for the local build out, this is a very aggressive program. how many -- what was the bond size? >> a billion dollars. >> a bill-dollar bond issue, thousands of small projects that have to be managed in a -- it's a very ambitious program. so that all of the difficulty we're having grasping just this first phase, if the first phase becomes dependent on the second phase, we have to get a lot smarter before we do that. because a lot of those questions frankly haven't been posed in a correct form yet let alone answered. >> that is to be continued. >> further comments? jason breed, i think you wanted to make a comment. mr. brookes? >>> mr. finestein and ms. ackerman. >>> jason freed laugh co-staff. a couple things i wanted to point out. i'd be remiss if i didn't remind y
streets but it gives us an additional tool to address the issues related to over night parking of large vehicles on a focused location specific basis. these -- some of these locations have resulted in some negative impacts from parking over night vehicles -- over night large sized vehicles and that's what we're attempting to address. i also want to refresh your memory. we did a sampling of the neighborhoods in the city prior to the legislation being considered and over 450 type of vehicles that far in this classification we found that 42% of them were motor homes but more importantly over 50% of them consist of trucks and buss and trailers so this legislation will also capture those types of vehicles and it's very important because i think a lot of our -- the concerns that we received from the neighborhoods were for those vehicles being warehoused on the city streets, and from our survey we also found those vehicles that are out on the street that we sample 60% of them actually were registered with san francisco addresses, and of those only 20% are within 1/4 mile of where they're reg
much local power's presentation that we are trying to use that to implement that we are not flow throwing down the launch of program and this is key for all of my commissioners and not slowing down the program we need to get this program lamped and up and running as quickly as possible and if there are things that can be utilized in his presentation great but if not we should continue to move forward and there is item a on the agenda and there is a presentation on that are you still doing that presentation or is that being moofgd to another date? because i have some comment on the not to exceeds from administrator finns presentation. >> and so for my understanding it was there for discussion, we plan to go back and give more information and have the commission vote on -- are you giving a presentation on it though. >> no, okay now i'll give you some quick comments i'm. . the not to exceed rate staff currently has the recovery of the $13.5 million that is being set aside as the start-up funds that money can actuallily be looked at in two different waysphosis not required by the
of us can connect the dots but most people cannot. and so we have to go slow with this. we cannot introduce too many variables, which do not have certainty. in this business, in this market nobody has certainty and you are a large entity that has control over those thing we don't want you all in the business of sub prime loans that is happening with this presentation. too many variables, too much uncertainty, and is totally confused. thank you very much.. >> any comments before we adjourn? >>> hi my name is hope and i have been an alas ska commissioner last co's discussion for c c a and what i here from local power today although it has some different pictures associated with it very much the same thing that local power has been saying when last co hired it and did the same thing now that it's under contract with you [spelling?] and the answers that they are giving don't change despite the concerns that have been heard over and over again and my concern and i share the objective of local build out and of keeping the rates low and i think it will be wonderful if we can fig
that could be a really good eligible use for any funds that we have, to have our own power system, we can help to ramp up. >> that's a great recommendation, thank you, and then as you know, puc is in the beginning phases of its sewer system improvement program and are trying to integrate some of the innovative technology resource recovery and the waste water process, so some ideas around that, and then i think one thing we were really pleased about is that last year when the legislature did their initial bills around happen trade revenue allocation, there is a requirement that up to 25% of dollars be spent in disadvantaged communities, historically, san francisco, the definition of disadvantaged communities that the state uses is one that keeps income relative to the state and so we often don't count as a disadvantaged community though we have many neighborhood that are struggling, i think the definition they're using for disadvantaged communities in the context of cap and trade dollars, the bayview hunter's point community will be eligible for those funds so we are hope hating we can try
important, so supervisor i was just wondering if you could tell us about for folks that find themselves in this situation that they maybe you know living in vehicles that are covered -- i mean what are the things we would like them to know and to do? one gentleman i think rightly noted we see the signs that tell us we can't do certain things but the things that we can do. >> so the fliers have the 24 number for the hot team. jason is very forth coming with the cell phone number so jason's number is eight five zero 7413. and i think those are the best routes. the hope office as well. certainly we're working closely with jason and his team so anyone can contacted us. we're in room 18 of city hall so if someone is living in a vehicle they could come to room 18 in city hall or contact me, so we welcome the opportunity to make a connection, understand what people's circumstances are, and how we can work with them, and i think we're going to try and take an individual approach as we can with each situation and see what we can do. >> okay. thank you. thank you supervisor. i appreciate i
